Key to Life - Our Response

  

We must accept what Christ has done for us by turning from our own way and trusting Christ as our Saviour.

Believing means trust and commitment - acknowledging our sinfulness, trusting Christ's forgiveness and letting Him control our life. Eternal, abundant life is a gift for us to receive.

We must repent of our sin.

"Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord."

Acts 3:19

Repentance is like makeing a U-turn Repentance is not just feeling sorry for our sin. Acts 26:20 
Repentance is turning to God through Jesus and turning away from our sin. 
It's like making a U- turn. 

We must place our faith in Jesus.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."

Eph. 2:8

Faith is not just believing facts about Jesus. James. 2:19
Faith is trusting in Jesus. 
It's like taking a trip on an aeroplane. You will never make the trip until you trust the plane enough to board it. 

To trust totally in Jesus means... 

We must surrender to Jesus as Lord.

"That if you confess with your mouth, ‘‘Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Rom. 10:9-10 

Surrendering to Jesus as Lord is not just saying we give our lives to Jesus. Matt. 7:21 
Surrendering to Jesus as Lord means giving Jesus control of our lives. 

As evidence of giving Jesus control, you will want to identify with Him. The New Testament way is to confess Jesus publicly Matt. 10:32-33 and to follow him in church membership.

    

Salvation is a free gift but you must ask for it to receive it. Will you cross the bridge and get saved today?
